Jessops chairman David Adams (pictured) has stepped down.

Adams, who joined the camera chain in 2007, oversaw a turnaround at Jessops which restructured its business and appointed Trevor Moore as CEO in 2009.

Jessops has appointed Martyn Everett, currently a director at media rights group Chorion, as its new chairman from 1 March.

Adams will serve as a consultant at Jessops for three months after he steps down at the end of February.

Meanwhile, Jessops has appointed Neil Old as its new commercial director. Previously, Old was European commercial director at Best Buy Europe’s Carphone Warehouse.

Moore thanked Adams for his ‘significant contribution to the business’, adding: ‘He has provided wise counsel, support to me as CEO and is highly regarded across our business.

‘I now look forward to working closely with Martyn and Neil as Jessops enters a new phase of development, drawing on their experience to drive the continued success of the business.’
